TAG TUESDAY - cutesy



Finally got a tag made just in time for Louise Granlund's TAG TUESDAY challenge for the week, which was to do something "cutesy".  Like a lot of you, I don't really do cute these days.  Found this darling angel stamp in one of my drawers.  I purchased it in 1998 and it was designed by Annette Allen Watkins.  I think she originally had her own stamp company; later her designs were sold by Printworks.  (I always put my name and the year I bought my stamps on the side of the wood mount.  Fun to see how long I've had some of them.  Of course, I can't identify the clear ones that way.)  I digress.  Colored the image and added some glitter.  Cut out the star shape and added stamped stars - large ones by Magenta, small ones by Rubber Moon.  Colored them in and added more glitter.  Some metallic stars and ribbon finish off this tag. 

This was indeed a challenge for me - am glad I found time to do it and get it posted.  Have been busy this past week with other things. 

TFL.

The stamp definitely has that dated "cutsie" look to it. I love how you gave the history of your stamp, too. I thought it was interesting.
Great start shaped tag, Joy!

Very cute! So fun that you had a "blast from the past" and found a cutesie stamp from another life. Well done!
